... to Windermere town, which has grown up as a modern holiday centre on the very shore of the beautiful lake of the same name, the largest of the group. Lake Windermere has beautifully wooded banks. The road runs close beside the lake to its northern end at Ambleside, ... Across the lake to the left rise such famous peaks as Coniston Old Man (2,633 feet); farther away and more to the north the loftier forms of Scafell Pike (3,210 feet) and Scafell (3,162 feet). But closer at hand, right upon our course, is the beauty spot of Low Wood, on the shore of the lake, where steamers embark passengers for trips down the long narrow lake. ...

A few years ago there was only one meaning to the word WINDERMERE. It then meant a lake lying among mountains, and so secluded that it was some distinction even for the travelled man to have seen it. Now, there is a ... thriving village of Windermere and a populous locality. ...

... As a general rule, lakes should be approached from the foot, that the ridges may rise, instead of sinking, before the observer's eye. But so happy is the access to Windermere from the station, that it is hard to say that it could have been better; and that access is, not from the south to its lower end, but from the south-east to about its middle. ... the road to Bowness descends, winding for about a mile and a half, striking the shore at a point rather more than half way up the lake, and commanding the group of mountains that cluster about its head.

[Professor Wilson] ... No less striking was it to see him in a mood of repose, as he was seen when steering the packet-boat that used to pass between Bowness and Ambleside, before the steamers were put upon the lake. Sitting motionless, with his hand upon the rudder, in the presence of journeymen and market-women, and his eye apparently looking beyond everything into nothing, and his mouth closed above his beard, as if he meant never to speak again, he was quite as impressive and immortal an image as he could have been to the students of his moral philosophy class, or the comrades of his jovial hours. ...

There are plenty of boats to be had at Waterhead and Bowness, ... The stranger should be warned, however, against two dangers which it is rash to encounter. Nothing should induce him to sail on Windermere, or on any lake surrounded by mountains. There is no calculating on, or accounting for, the gusts that come down between the hills; and no skill and practice obtained by boating on rivers or the waters of a flat country are any sure protection here. And nothing should induce him to go out in one of the little skiffs which are too easily attainable and too tempting, from the ease of rowing them. The surface may become rough at any minute, and those skiffs are unsafe in all states of the water but the calmest. The long list of deaths occasioned in this way,- deaths both of residents and strangers,- should have put an end to the use of these light skiffs, long ago. The larger boats are safe enough, and most skilfully managed by their rowers: and the stranger can enjoy no better treat than gliding along, for hours of the summer day, peeping into the coves and bays, coasting the islands, and lying cool in the shadows of the woods. The clearness of the water is a common surprise to the resident in a level country; and it is pleasant sport to watch the movements of the fish, darting, basking, or leaping in the sunshine, or quivering their fins in the reflected ray. What the quality of the trout and char is, the tourist will probably find every day, at breakfast and dinner.

[N of Ings] ... The Lake of Windermere shortly afterwards bursts upon the eye like a fairy vision - the islands - the mazy windings of the shores, clad with thick wood or skirted with verdant plains. The town of Bowness with its white houses, and the rocky mountains of Rydal at a considerable distance, rivet the gaze of the silently admiring tourist.

WINDERMERE
Is the largest lake, being ten miles and a half long by water, and thirteen by land; its breadth varies, though the extreme does not extend two miles; the same may be said of its depth, which is from five to thirty-seven fathoms. Its circumference is about twenty-six miles, and its waters cover an area of from four to five thousand acres. The chief feeders are the streams of the Rothay and Brathay, which unite at the landing-place. The former, descending from the Raise Gap and from Easedale Tarn, passes through Grasmere and Rydal; the bicipitous sources of the latter, rising in Langdale Head and Wry Nose, mingle their streams in Elter Water, and after dashing over Skelwith Force, flow gently to the lake. A stream from Troutbeck enters the lake at Calgarth Park. The waters of this Mere preserve nearly the same level, there being scarcely any perceptible difference either in wet or dry weather; they discharge themselves by the river Leven, and enter the sea in the Bay of Morecambe. Trout, pike, perch, eels, and char, abound in them; and wild fowl of

various kinds, as swans, geese, ducks, teal, and widgeons, resort to its islands and secluded bays. The islands are clustered together in the middle and narrowest part of the lake.
This lake should be seen both from the shores and surface. It unfolds so many beauties to the sailor, owing to the size, its islands, and its having two vales at the head, with the surrounding mountains of equal dignity, that they can only be seen at once from the bosom of the water. The islands may be explored at any time; but Mr. Wordsworth says, that one bright unruffled evening should be set apart for the splendour, stillness, and solemnity of the upper reach, and a peep into the river, which seems like a gentle overflow of the lake. The best land views are on the east side, three miles south of the head; but very rich views may be obtained from the following points:- First, the Langdale Pikes are seen between Waterhead and Bowness: Second, the islands looking down the lake, beginning north of Skelgill, and ending near Rayrigg: Third, the head of the lake, with the greater and lesser islands in the middle, and the Rydal mountains in the extreme distance, is seen from a hill between Bowness and Bellman Ground: Fourth, the view from the Station over the great island, having Rayrigg and Calgarth on the banks, with Applethwaite and Kentmere mountains in the distance: Fifth, the Rydal and Ambleside mountains, from between Bellegrange and High Wray: Sixth, the sunset view from Grathwaite, having Rawlinson's Nab
Page 26:-
and Storrs on the left and right, and the Troutbeck mountains in the background.
The road which encircles the lake, presents very noble views, but the neighbouring high grounds afford more extensive and splendid ones. Its grand characteristics are diffuseness, stately beauty, and magnificence.
... The views [from Belle Isle] most worthy of notice are - First, Rayrigg, with the Lady and Hen Holm Island - the wooded enclosures up to Elleray, Applethwaite, and Kentmere - Hill Bell and High Street closing in the background: Second, the Ferry House and Station, with
Page 27:-
the hilly ground above Grathwaite: Third, northward up the lake to the Rydal mountains. Here Dove Nest is a pretty object, and the Pike of Wansfell is seen rising over Calgarth, which is on the banks of the water.
Windermere being so extensive, cannot be thoroughly examined from any one point; the Ferry Inn and Bowness, Low Wood Inn and Ambleside, are the most favourable resting-places, from whence its varied scenes of beauty, grandeur, and sublimity, may be contemplated. Newby Bridge, also, is a delightful situation at the foot, seated under a wooded hill of considerable elevation. The Leven is a noble stream, and higher up above the bridge, gradually widens in sportive curves and charming little bays. At Fellfoot, encompassed by majestic woods, the Coniston mountains peer above the lake. Hence the road skirts Gunner's How past Trover Wood, a little beyond which, Curwen's Island appears as united to both sides, and thus cutting the lake into two parts; beyond is Calgarth, and the distant mountains of Fairfield, Scandale, Coldale, and Hill Bell. Nearer the spectator, stands Storrs Hall, on a far stretching promontory; and on the opposite side the pretty projecting woodlands of the Ferry-Point and Berkshire Islands. The scenery from Bellman Ground exceeds that from any other place south of the island. Storrs Hall, the Rectory, the Ferry House, the Little Islands, Bowness and the elegant winding shores up to Ambleside, and the Rydal

mountains shutting in the scene, engage the attention, and excite the admiration and mute astonishment of the traveller. ...

Having given its name to the adjoining parish, it has been thought necessary in speaking of the lake itself, to add the word water, or lake, by way of distinction. It is the largest of the English Lakes, being upwards of ten miles in length, measured upon the water; by the road on its banks considerably more. Its greatest breadth

is about a mile, and depth nearly forty fathoms. A strait, near the middle of the lake, has a public ferry-boat, on the way between Kendal and Hawkshead.
The numerous islands, with which it is enriched, are chiefly grouped near the middle of the lake; so as to admit greater scope for the exercise of sailing. The principal, called Belle-Isle ... Besides this, are Crow-Holm, two Lily of the Valley-Holms, Thompson's-Holm, House-Holm, Hen-Holm, Lady-Holm, and Rough-Holm; and to the south of the Ferry, Berkshire-Island, Ling-Holm, Grass-Holm, Silver-Holm, and Blake-Holm.
Windermere is stocked with a variety of fish, of which char are the most esteemed. Char being taken by nets in the winter months, are potted, and sent to different parts of the kingdom. The principal feeders of the lake are the Rothay, having its source in Grasmere; and the Brathay, issuing from Langdale. These two rivers unite their streams about half a mile before entering the lake; ...

... Towards its foot, the shores of the lake appear beautifully broken, by several promontories stretching far into the water from each side.
Some would like to commence their survey of Windermere at Newby Bridge, and have the scenery to unfold itself as they advance. Others will be more gratified by the prospect bursting upon them at once in full expansion, as it does from the elevated ground, on either of the roads leading from Kendal towards Bowness or Ambleside. All the way, from two miles south of Bowness to the head of the lake, the views are excellent; and every rising ground affords something new in the combination. A station about a mile from Low Wood Inn, on the highest part of the road towards Troutbeck, gives the most distinct view of all the Islands; and Rayrigg-Bank has the most complete view of the whole lake. ...

The THIRD division - forming only inferior elevations - commences with a bed of dark-blue or blackish transition limestone, containing here and there a few shells and madrepores, and alternating with a slaty rock of the same colour; the different layers of each being in some places several feet, in others only a few inches in thickness. This limestone crosses the river Duddon near Broughton; passing Broughton Mills it runs in a north-east direction through Torver, by the foot of the Old Man mountain, and appears near Low Yewdale and Yew Tree. Here it makes a considerable slip to the eastward, after which it ranges past the Tarns upon the hills above Borwick Ground; and stretching through Skelwith, it crosses the head of Windermere near Low Wood Inn. Then passing above Dovenest and Skelgill, it traverses the vales of Troutbeck, Kentmere, and Long Sleddale;

The first view of the lake [coming from Kendal] is within six miles of Kendal, at the village of Bowness, where there is also a good inn, from whence boats may be taken to convey visitors across the lake to the several isles of it, or to the distant borders thereof. A most gratifying tour also may be made from hence along part of its eastern border to Ambleside, where Mr. Grey describes delicious views across it, and almost from one end to the other; it is 10 miles in length, and at most a mile over, resembling the course of some vast and magnificent river, with no flat marshy grounds, no osier beds, or patches of scrubby plantations on its banks: at the head two valleys open among the mountains, from thence the fells visibly sink, and soften along its sides; sometimes they run into it, (but with a gentle declivity) in their own dark and natural complexion: often they are green and cultivated, with farms interspersed, and round eminences on the border, covered with trees: towards the south it seemed to break into large bays, with several islands and a wider extent of cultivation.

Winander mere is 15 miles long by one broad, 90 feet deep in the middle, in other places 132 feet, and its greatest depth opposite Ecclerigg crag 222 feet, the bottom smooth horizontal slate rocks. Before storms it has a current in the opposite direction to that point whence the wind comes. ...
The char which abounds in the cold Lapland lakes is found in Winander mere, Llyn Quellyn at the foot of Snowden, and Llynberis, and in certain lakes of Merionethshire and Scotland. In the 2d and 3d of these the copper works have entirely destroyed the fish. The largest and most beautiful are taken in Winandermeer, distinguished into the case, the gelt or baren, and the red char. Some slight variety in these three. The former spawn about Michaelmas, chiefly in the river Brathy, which has a black stoney bottom, and are in highest perfection from May through the summer. The gelt char spawn from January to March, and keep in the smooth sandy parts of the lake, are taken from the end of September to the end of November, and are esteemed more delicate for the table, especially potted. The spawning season of the Westmorland chars agrees nearly with that of the Welsh ones, which from their colour are called torgoch or red belly, the other two being paler. The Snowdon chars are smaller and paler. The division of the counties Lancaster and Westmorland is through the middle of this lake.
...
All the isles or holmes in Winander mere are in Westmorland, and all the fishing belongs to Apelthwaite in Winander mere parish in the said county, and all the tithe fish to the rector thereof, who has a pleasure boat on the lake and a prescription of so much a boat in lieu of the said tithe. The abbot of Furness by gift of William de Lancaster baron of Kendal, had formerly two boats on it. See more of it in Westmoreland.

The large lake called Windermere water is in Applethwaite division. The islands within it are all in Windermere parish. The rector hath for time immemorial had a pleasure boat upon it; and he hath a prescription of so much a boat, in lieu of all the tithe fish that are caught in the lake.
This lake is from one to two miles broad, and extends with crooked banks for the space of about thirteen miles, but in a straight line drawn from one end to the other, perhaps not above eight or nine miles, being in some places of a wonderful

depth, and of a good clear pebbly bottom; breeding good store of fish, as eels, trouts (both common and grey), pikes, bass or perch, skellies, and particularly char, which is a fish generally about nine inches long, the rareness of which fish occasions many pots of it to be sent to London and other places yearly as presents. There are three sorts of chars; first, the male, being large, with a red belly, but the fish thereof somewhat white within, having a soft roe, these are called milting chars; secondly, the female, being also large, with not so red a belly, but the fish thereof very red within, having its belly full of hard roes or spawn, called roneing chars; thirdly, the female being not so large nor so red on the outside, but the reddest within, having no roes within its belly, and these are called gelt chars.
Sir Daniel Fleming says, there are no chars to be found save only in this lake and Coningston Water. Some other waters (he says) pretend to have chars in them, as Buttermere in Cumberland, and Ulleswater, which is between Westmorland and Cumberland; but these are generally esteemed by knowing persons to be only case, a kind of fish somewhat like unto char, but not near so valuable; but the owners of the fishery in Ulleswater do not assent to this position.
The fishery in the lake is farmed by several persons, who all together pay to the king's receiver for fishing 6l. a year, or for the fishing and ferry together £.6. 13s. 8d. and so it descends to their executors or administrators.
The fishing is divided into three Cables as they call them: 1. The high cable, from the water head to the char bed, half a mile above Culgarth. 2. The middle cable, from thence to below the ferry. The low cable, from thence to Newby. And in each cable there are four fisheries.
...
Water fowl in great plenty resort to this lake, especially in winter; such as wild swans, wild geese, ducks, mallard, teal, widgeons, didappers, gravyes (which are larger than ducks, and build in hollow trees), and many others.
In this lake are several islands; ...

VIEW across WINDERMERE, looking over the GREAT ISLAND.
THE Views given of Windermere, when compared with each other, shew that the Style of that Lake and its Environs differs materially from the other Lakes which are exhibited in the Course of this Work. That it is a Landscape of a softer Species, and wears a more cultivated Appearance. In Grandeur and Simplicity it is inferior to Derwentwater and Ulswater; but excels both in Splendour and Extent. Each Lake has a peculiar and striking Character; the Difficulty, therefore, with the Artist, is to determine on those Situations where the Distinction is marked in the strongest Manner. The Islands on Windermere (if they may be so called, many of them being rather wooded Rocks), are ten in number, composing a Kind of Archipelago, and in some Views appearing to separate the upper from the lower Reach of the Lake. In this View, which was taken on the Western Side, nearly opposite the Village of Bowness, the Great-Island, which contains about thirty Acres, forms a principal Object. It is of an oblong Shape, traversing the Lake in an oblique Line, and is the only one on which a Building is erected. From the Ferry-House beneath to Bowness, is the great Pass of Communication from the Western to the Eastern Shore.

VIEW of WINDERMERE from GILL-HEAD.
WINDERMERE or WINANDERMERE as it is sometimes called, is the largest of the Lakes, extending from North to South upwards of ten Miles. In Breadth it rarely exceeds one, and narrows considerably towards the lower End. The Northern and Western Coasts are wild and mountainous, the Eastern and Southern are more depressed, being in some Parts cultivated, in others woody. At about an equal Distance from each Extremity stands the Village of Bowness. Opposite to it the Lake is divided into two Parts by a Cluster of Islands, one of which, being much larger than the rest is usually called the Great-Island. The Drawing of this Subject was made near a Place called Gill-Head, about three Miles below Bowness. It comprehends a general View of the Lake looking towards the North. The Accompanyments of this Lake are highly beautiful, and its Extent gives it an Air of great Magnificence.

A few Circumstances of Notoriety are habitually recommended; to these he pays his Visit, and leaves the Place, supposing himself sufficiently acquainted with what is remarkable.- But a true Idea of the Beauties of such a Country can only be formed by him who has Time to explore the various Elevations, who considers the different Points of View, and suffers no accidental Circumstance to escape him. In this View, which was taken a little above Rydal-Hall, Part of Windermere-Lake, bounded on the West-Side by Furness-Fells, has a beautiful Effect, over the dark Umbrage that decorates the Hills adjacent to Ambleside, the Situation of which is marked by a few Houses in the middle Distance.

The Lake of Winandermere is the largest in England, and contains, below the Ferry, two thousand acres at low water, and 2574 above the Ferry, (including islands;) deduct for islands forty acres, and there then remain 4534 acres of water in the whole: The length down the middle ten miles and a half; from Ambleside along the road by Troutbeck Bridge and Bowness to Fell-Foot, is eleven miles and a half. This Lake having been reported by the fishermen and others to be in many places 70 and 80 fathoms deep, I determined to try it by experiment: I therefore got a line made up of hair, 90 fathoms long, to which I put an iron weight of eight pounds, hollow up the middle: I then sounded this and all the other Lakes, and found the depths as marked upon the plans where taken. It had also been reported, that these Lakes had gravelly bottoms of clear, white, and red pebbles, &c.; but I found no rocky or pebbly bottom; at two fathoms the weight generally sunk into the mud at the bottom, and the tube came up filled with very small sand like dust; by letting it stay one minute at the bottom, it would have sunk a foot into the mud, which might be easily distinguished by the line; ...
The fishery in this Lake is a freehold belonging to several men, which together pay a quit-rent of six pounds to the lord of the manor, but is not very valuable; for the pike, the most voracious of all fresh water fish is in plenty here the whole year, and destroys the other fish: Here are also trout, eels, perch, and charr; the trouts are scarce and bad, though some are pretty large; they are, however, ill fed, owing as I suppose, to not venturing to seek food for fear of their natural enemy the pike.

To sum up the peculiar beauties of Windermere, its great variety of landscapes, and enchanting views, after what Mr. Young has said of it is unnecessary. He allowed himself time to examine this lake, and the lakes in Cumberland, and he describes each of them with much taste and judgement, and it is evident he gives the preference to Windermere [1]. Yet this ought not to prejudice the minds of those who have the tour to make, against such as prefer Derwent-water, or

On the banks of Windermere-water, have been lately built many elegant villas; ... These objects, as works of art, most of which are done in styles suitable to their situation, give an air of consequence to the country, and, with the surrounding natural beauties, have lately made this neighbourhood, and particularly about Ambleside, a place of the greatest celebrity.

Ullswater. The styles are all different, and therefore the sensations they excite will also be different; and the idea that gives pleasure or pain in the highest degree, will be the rule of comparative judgement. It will, however, perhaps be allowed by all, that the greatest variety of fine landscape is found at this lake [1].
These stations will furnish much amusement to those who visit them; and others may perhaps be occasionally found, equally pleasing. And whoever is delighted with water expeditions and entertainments, such as rowing, sailing, fishing, &c., may enjoy them here in the highest perfection.
The principal feeders of Windermere-water, are the rivers Rothay and Brathay.- They unite their streams at the western corner of the head of the lake, below Clappersgate, at a place called the Three-foot-brander, and after a short course boldly enter the lake.
[1] Not one bulrush, or swampy reed defiles the margin of this imperial Lake. No Lake has its border so well ascertained, and of such easy access. Not one, after Lomond, can boast of so vast a guard of mountains, with such variety and diversity of shore.
In Navigating the Lake upwards from the great Island, the extremity appears singularly noble; its parts great and picturesque. The view of the surrounding mountains, from Cove to Kirkstone is astonishing.

The fish of this lake are char, trout, perch, pike, and eel. Of the char there are two varieties, the case char, and the gelt char.

The fall from Newby-bridge, where the current of the lake becomes visible, to the high water-mark of the tide at Low-wood (distant two miles) is 105 feet.

But I must not forget Winander Mere, which makes the utmost northern bounds of this shire, which is famous for the char fish found here and hereabout, and no where else in England; it is found indeed in some of the rivers or lakes in Swisserland among the Alps, and some say in North Wales; but I question the last. It is a curious fish, and, as a dainty, is potted, and sent far and near, as presents to the best friends; but the quantity they take also is not great. Mr. Cambden's continuator calls it very happily the Golden Alpine Trout.
...
The great Winander Mere, like the Mediterranean Sea, extends it self on the west side [of Westmorland] for twelve miles and more, reckoning from North Bridge on the south, where it contracts it self again into a river up to Grasmere North, and is the boundary of the county, as I have said, on that side; ...

... this great lake Wiandermer or great standing water, which is 10 mile long and near halfe a mile over in some places; it has many little hills or isles in it, ... the water is very clear and full of good fish, but the Charr fish being out of season could not easily be taken so I saw none alive, but of other fish I had a very good supper; the season for the Charrfish is between Michaelmas and Christmas, at that tyme I have had of them which they pott with sweete spices, they are as big as a small trout rather slenderer and the skinn full of spots some redish, and part of the whole skinn and the finn and taile is red like the finns of a perch, and the inside flesh looks as red as any salmon; if they are in season their taste is very rich and fatt tho' not so strong or clogging as the lamprys are, but its as fatt and rich a food.
This great water seemes to flow and wave about with the wind or in one motion but it does not ebb and flow like the sea with the tyde, neither does it run so as to be perceivable tho' at the end of it a little rivulet trills from it into the sea, but it seemes to be a standing lake encompass'd with vast high hills that are perfect rocks and barren ground of a vast height from which many little springs out of the rock does bubble up and descend down and fall into this water; notwithstanding great raines the water does not seem much encreased, tho' it must be so, then it does draine off more at the end of the Lake; ...
... where its so shallow at the shores it is and very cleer you see the bottom, between these stones are weeds which grows up that I had some taken up, just like sampyer [samphire] and I have a fancy its a sort of sampire that indeed is gather'd in the rocks by the sea and water, and this grows in the water but it resembles it in coullour figure and the taste not much unlike, it was somewhat waterish; there was also fine moss growing in the bottom of the water.

How beautiful the art of that pencil who so easily can express so much!

The text is:-
LAUNCH OF THE "DRAGON-FLY" STEAMER ON LAKE WINDERMERE
ON Monday, the 18th inst., another vessel, built for the Windermere Iron Steamer Company, was launched at Low Wood, Windermere. Its dimensions are 100 feet in length, 14 feet beam, 50 horse-power, and a very light draught of water, not more than 20 inches. The vessel was launched complete in every respect, and with steam up; so that the moment he reached the water, the engines being started, she immediately steamed around the beautiful bay of Low Wood, amidst the cheers of the spectators.
This new steamer was built by Messrs. M'Conochie and Claude, engineers, Liverpool, and was christened the Dragon-Fly by Mrs Rigg, the lady of the Secretary of the Company. After the launch, a large party sat down to an excellent dinner, at Mr. Logan's, Low Wood Hotel.

Painting, watercolour over a lithograph print, Windermere, A Storm, by Ford Madox Brown, about 1855.
Windermere from the head of the lake with Bowness on the far distant shore. In the foreground a scattered herd of cattle lie in a sloping field enclosed by drystone walls on left. Two figures pass across it from right to left. Beyond lies the lake fringed on the nearside with trees; beyond it rise distant hills. A heavy bank of cloud hovers over the horizon.
Brown seldom left his studio to paint outdoors and only painted two pictures on the spot in his career. However, Brown was encouraged to visit the Lake District in 1848 by fellow artist Rossetti, to study the outdoor effects of light. Brown spent six days in the Lake District and was only affected by rain on his last day when he had to sketch under an umbrella. Brown completed a larger version of this view in oils which is now in the Lady Lever Art Gallery; the print was made from that painting. Brown decided to paint over the surface of the print entirely in opaque watercolour to hide its surface. He also decided to add a very fanciful sky and group of trees on the right hand side which are absent in the original painting. Brown captures a moment in time in this picture. Two people are walking across the bright green grassy field filled with cattle, while above, storm clouds are brewing.
On 31st January 1858 the artist recorded in his diary 'coloured at one of my lithographs of Windermere to give John Marshall [an eminent surgeon]'.

The two ferry points, with Berkshire Island, lie between the houses of Mr. Bolton and Mr. Curwen. Calgarth, the seat of the Right Rev. the Bishop of Llandaff, is among the enclosures on the banks of the lake, and is seen beyond the Island House.
